Plate 260 Night Scout - Nez Perce
Portfolio, 18 x 22 inches
Taken at night by photographer Edward S. Curtis this image displays a Nez Perce scout on horseback. Possibly looking for buffalo or more likely looking for approaching enemies. The subtle details of his moccasins and the grasses stand out against the darkness of the piece. Printed by Edward S. Curtis in 1910 on Dutch Van Gelder paper. The pieces is available for sale at our Aspen Art Gallery.
